When we watch movies, we can't take our eyes off the fabulous jewelry!
Breakfast at Tiffiny's movie has some of the most memorable jewelry ever worn by Audrey Hepburn. The iconic image of her in that little black dress, adorned with a stunning pearl necklace and sparkling earrings, remains a classic look among trendsetters. That signature bouffant hairstyle is the perfect canvas to display her incredible tiara. Hepburn wore pearls like no other in film as Holly Golightly.
Although she famously sang Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend, Marilyn Monroe did not own much expensive jewellery. At the 1999 Christie's sale, the only diamonds of note were those in a 35-baguette eternity ring given to her by Joe DiMaggio; he also bought her a 16-inch strand of Akoya pearls, which she gave to Paula Strasberg. The rest of her jewels were costume pieces.
